Adapted from the lyrics of Thom Yorke’s Suspirium, with additional lines from T.S. Eliot’s Little Gidding.
This adaptation was made for its own sake: i.e. I do not make money from this (nor from any of my other few dubious endeavours). Full credit to Thom Yorke and T.S. Eliot for the lyrics; to Nerina Fielding, and to the Pexels / Pixabay / Mixkit communities for the source material footage; and to Dead Can Dance, whose work I have sampled and distorted for this video. Full credits below.
🎶 SOUND 🎶
For the second part of this video, I have used Paulstretch software to stretch out a section of The Host of Seraphim, by Dead Can Dance. The result is not representative of the original (though if you're familiar with the track you might still recognise it). I think The Host of Seraphim is an incredible piece of music, and you can find out more about Dead Can Dance using the link below.
